Bojhe Veliki. Sung in Ukrainian at St Michael Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Woonsocket, RI. Priest: Fr. Anthony Perkins. Fall of 2007. Bojhe Veliki is a traditional prayer for our homeland (Vkraina / Krai) and for us as her sons and daughters.  No doubt, many singing it to beseech God to relieve the yoke of foreign communist rule over Ukraine.  However, its stirring melody and poetic language call us to remember more than our physical, ancestral, and spiritual homelands here on earth: they evoke within our hearts the deeper nostalgia and yearning for our True Home, the place that our Lord Himself has prepared for us in glory.  For instance, when it asks our Lord to "enlighten us through knowledge and learning" so that the "pure love for our homeland might flourish within and among us", it is asking our Lord to grow us into proper children of His inheritance.  Please stand attentively and join the choir as we sing this beautiful prayer at the end of every Divine Liturgy. www.stmichaeluoc.org.
